  3. We were so saddened to hear about the death of Ray. He was such a fighter and said he'll never give up and had such a wonderful attitude. Heremodeled our home and was such a wonderful person to work with – always made you feel comfortable and really took care of each request and would just say when we would bring up a new problem, "don't worry about it, I'll handle it".
